pika here

00:12:26--> 00:12:27

in Emeryville shape

00:12:29--> 00:12:30

Are you traveling abroad either

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

in a relationship on a

00:12:34--> 00:12:36

continuing basis it will

00:12:37--> 00:12:38

be very solid

00:12:39--> 00:12:40

with

00:12:42--> 00:12:43

family

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

and having a party or controlling you

00:12:50--> 00:12:50

and

00:12:52--> 00:12:53

physically worshipping

00:12:56--> 00:12:58

Allah for the

00:13:00--> 00:13:04

lead and why Audi unwearied apara and the team

00:13:10--> 00:13:10

have

00:13:12--> 00:13:12

been

00:13:17--> 00:13:17

rocking

00:13:19--> 00:13:19

it

00:13:24--> 00:13:26

multi partisan systems in snap.

00:13:28--> 00:13:33

It was disheartening for me to hear that when someone was asked

00:13:35--> 00:13:36

about the month of Ramadan

00:13:38--> 00:13:43

that that individual said Isn't this a month where Muslims kill each other.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

Now, the month of Ramadan comes

00:13:53--> 00:14:02

and it comes with this great spirit of virtue. This is what the month of Ramadan is all about. I'm not saying this was how

00:14:09--> 00:14:19

fasting was prescribed upon you as it was upon those who are before you know that you may attain virtue, taqwa piety, righteousness.

00:14:20--> 00:14:22

This is what fasting is all about.

00:14:23--> 00:14:29

And unfortunately, we find that Muslims and non Muslims

00:14:30--> 00:14:32

who are ignorant

00:14:34--> 00:14:41

and who have their own agendas take advantage of these days in a vicious way.

00:14:43--> 00:14:47

And we find that the month of Ramadan is linked to the increase of violence

00:14:48--> 00:14:50

and quote all kinds of destructive behavior.

00:14:51--> 00:14:52

And there was more.

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

I mean, I don't watch the news. Now during the most important one as I used it before

00:15:01--> 00:15:07

But when I, when someone told me the other day someone was assassinate one of the Muslim countries.

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

And just last night or two nights ago, there was another assassination,

00:15:15--> 00:15:15

violence,

00:15:17--> 00:15:17

terrorist.

00:15:20--> 00:15:22

That issue sponsored by states.

00:15:23--> 00:15:43

And that which is perpetrated and carried out on the hands of deviant ignorant Muslims who attribute whatever they do to them. One of those verses that actually caught my attention two nights ago, we decided to cancel off last night, actually a person sort of,

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

well, most of our data sets can be upsetting,

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

generally tell you about those who are,

00:15:53--> 00:15:57

who are the worst losers when it comes to their deeds and actions, the worst

00:16:00--> 00:16:03

to do here, those who go astray, their actions are

00:16:04--> 00:16:08

wrong. They're way off, what

00:16:10--> 00:16:12

they think that what they're doing is good.

00:16:14--> 00:16:18

And this is the worst type of people. I mean, there are those who do,

00:16:19--> 00:16:26

who committed wrongdoing and, and all kinds of sense while knowing that they're doing something wrong.

00:16:28--> 00:16:38

Those people perhaps one day, they might be admonished they might remember they might wake up and ask you about some contractual forgiveness and feel sorry for what they have done.

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

But worse than that, are those people who do what they do thinking that it's good

00:16:47--> 00:16:53

while it's a reality rejected by was handled down there, the words of paper, they will come on the Day of Judgment,

00:16:54--> 00:17:02

and be shocked and disappointed that all the leaves are rejected, because they were not some

00:17:05--> 00:17:06

brothers and sisters,

00:17:07--> 00:17:09

we are to take a step.

00:17:11--> 00:17:12

The model formula

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

is a month for transformation, for improvement,

00:17:20--> 00:17:22

it was a month to pursue version.

00:17:25--> 00:17:29

And part of pursuing virtue. And part of that transformation that we have to

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

be part of

00:17:34--> 00:17:34

is removing

00:17:36--> 00:17:37

the causes

00:17:38--> 00:17:41

of this political hypocrisy

00:17:42--> 00:17:45

that whether again, it is

00:17:47--> 00:17:50

adopted by states or individuals or groups.

00:17:52--> 00:17:54

It is our responsibility

00:17:55--> 00:17:57

to bring this transformation

00:17:58--> 00:17:59

and denounce

00:18:00--> 00:18:09

those, those, again, we'll call this the ground for this political hypocrisy that we see that is used.

00:18:10--> 00:18:14

And in some cases, in the name of our own faith in the name of Islam,

00:18:15--> 00:18:18

that is used to turn people away from a loss of power with

00:18:19--> 00:18:22

that is used to violate some of the essential

00:18:23--> 00:18:30

values that Islam and Africa came to establish a loss of power regardless of whether

00:18:31--> 00:18:41

we have honored mankind human beings, we have honored the loss of habitat honor this, this human being as well as an attendance descendant.

00:18:42--> 00:18:44

And the statement was genuine in the program.

00:18:46--> 00:18:48

Unfortunately, the month of Ramadan

00:18:50--> 00:18:57

is one of those periods where people get warnings all over the place, that the level of violence will increase.

00:18:59--> 00:19:03

Also, which of course happens back to our countries, the Middle East,

00:19:05--> 00:19:10

right, and the performer is associated with these kinds of activities. And this can be

00:19:13--> 00:19:15

we read the perhaps

00:19:16--> 00:19:18

in the month of Ramadan, more than any other month

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

and we come across verses

00:19:22--> 00:19:23

that should actually

00:19:24--> 00:19:38

remind us of what matters most brothers and sisters a loss of power. For instance, one of those verses, emphasizing on the sanctity of life, human life and all kinds of life.

00:19:42--> 00:19:44

When I took a little hammer off

00:19:46--> 00:19:47

and do not kill,

00:19:48--> 00:19:50

do not take the like, kill

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

your children. Right, it says in the previous version, and then it says

00:19:57--> 00:20:00

and taken off life, which goes

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

He has made secret,

00:20:02--> 00:20:04

except by way of justice in law.

00:20:09--> 00:20:13

Life is sacred. We know in the verse

00:20:14--> 00:20:24

of Surah Surah five, verse 32. God said that he who saved one mic, it is as if he has saved

00:20:26--> 00:20:28

the life of saving one life.

00:20:29--> 00:20:34

And this is what the month of Ramadan is all about. When we talk about hunger,

00:20:35--> 00:20:40

and feeling for those people who are less fortunate, we don't have as much as we have.

00:20:41--> 00:20:44

And we know that people are people in the world are starving.

00:20:45--> 00:20:48

It's our obligation as Muslims to save lives.

00:20:49--> 00:20:52

It is our obligation as Muslims to do acts that will

00:20:54--> 00:20:57

contribute to saving lives, and improving life.

00:20:58--> 00:21:06

So if anyone comes and says, well, Islam says that you can violate the sanctity of life, we say no.

00:21:09--> 00:21:13

And even if that person is one of us, or looks like us are toxic,

00:21:15--> 00:21:16

brothers and sisters,

00:21:17--> 00:21:26

as the suffering of our Muslim brothers and sisters in the world continues, we have to take a proactive role.

00:21:28--> 00:21:30

And the month of Ramadan teaches us many

00:21:31--> 00:21:34

practices, many things that we can do

00:21:35--> 00:21:42

to improve the situation, one of which is sort of the default, which we will talk about inshallah, next Friday. So

00:21:45--> 00:21:45

that

00:21:46--> 00:21:57

is another concept. And many people pay attention to those kinds of issues during the month of Ramadan. But we have to remember that there's a kindness This is an obligation, it is one of the pillars of Islam.

00:21:58--> 00:21:59

So

00:22:01--> 00:22:03

if you have not thought of as

00:22:04--> 00:22:12

if it has been a while since you really considered fulfilling this part of this lab, which is one of the pillars of Islam,

00:22:13--> 00:22:16

you know what a pillar is without that pillar, Islam does not extend.

00:22:18--> 00:22:38

It is as sacred as salon fasting. And that's why, you know, I said hypocrisy earlier, because we have someone fasting, yet when it comes to the cat, or somehow they don't care, or they neglect that that is great. I say this, an answer wasn't How to Make Your nine of those, listen and follow the visit of

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

a poodle.

00:22:49--> 00:22:54

We are approaching the last 10 nights of Ramadan, brothers and sisters.

00:22:55--> 00:22:56

I mean, this is

00:22:58--> 00:23:00

the sixth day of Ramadan.

00:23:02--> 00:23:05

Two weeks have passed, half of the month is gone.

00:23:06--> 00:23:33

We have, the better half left. And I know like many people, unfortunately, the level of that enthusiasm and excitement that we saw at the beginning of the month, when all of a sudden the first two nights, the mercy was almost scope. People didn't care were a part of it, people did not use any kind of they did not let any excuse turn them away from coming and connecting with their body.

00:23:35--> 00:23:40

But as the month continue to progress, we started noticing this decline.

00:23:42--> 00:23:56

Because somehow, somehow, our old habits caught up with us. And we will not be able to live the spirit of the month of Ramadan or we will not be able to internalize

00:23:57--> 00:24:06

the lessons or the principles that that the multiple God reminds us of we were not able to internalize it, and resists

00:24:07--> 00:24:12

all kinds of factors that cause us to miss out on a lot of good deeds.

00:24:14--> 00:24:27

Brothers and sisters, the reason I'm saying this is because we still have some time we have the better half of the month. We have the best 10 nights ahead of us. And we have to we have to catch.

00:24:29--> 00:24:36

Otherwise, we will be those people who have the problems consider to be the worst of the losers and they're not losers. They weren't there to nurture

00:24:39--> 00:24:40

the product set it

00:24:41--> 00:24:48

in a way they probably could not imagine or understand how one could have the opportunity of the month of Ramadan

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

at their disposal and not take advantage of it not get your sense by the end of this month forgiving.

00:24:59--> 00:25:00

So we have the

00:25:00--> 00:25:04

Last 10 nights during the nights of the whole year, and then there's

00:25:06--> 00:25:08

the night of decrease.

00:25:09--> 00:25:12

We have a special program for the last 10 nights, mostly it's massages.

00:25:14--> 00:25:15

Mission Viejo.

00:25:17--> 00:25:24

Irvine, and our center here have joint activities on the 25th and the 27th, and the 29th. Ninth.

00:25:25--> 00:25:34

So take advantage of those opportunities that you have. When you come in worship in a congregation you get motivated.

00:25:35--> 00:25:43

Sometimes people say no, I'm going to stay home, it's kind of annoying to deal with a parking lot issue, we come up with all different kinds with all kinds of excuses.

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

So someone might say, well, isn't shaper, I don't know whether or not some people, sure enough, some people have enough excuses, that they have basically brought with them from,

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

from before Ramadan against Satan excuses,

00:25:59--> 00:26:03

just to discourage them from going and connecting with the loss of habitat.

00:26:04--> 00:26:13

In the verses that really excite during the nights of Ramadan, one message that is repeated in many sources for artists actually apart is your enemy take you as an enemy.

00:26:14--> 00:26:16

And don't let him bring you down.

00:26:17--> 00:26:25

And remember that he has authority or no one except those who follow the lizard. He has authority, he has no authority or power over him.

00:26:26--> 00:26:29

And one of those areas where the power is taken advantage of.

00:26:31--> 00:26:53

And those opportunities, one of those areas that shavon wanted to miss out on is taken advantage of those opportunities in which you can actually get for the Cosmo must have looked at one of those the same type of experiences that some people might have is that, oh, you're going to give us a compliment? Is it enough that you pay taxes. So power when it comes to our taxes, we take care of it. But when it comes to the

00:26:55--> 00:26:55

two and a half percent

00:26:58--> 00:26:59

of your wealth,

00:27:00--> 00:27:02

which does not actually belong to you.

00:27:03--> 00:27:13

And that portion of your wealth, after a year becomes it belongs to someone else, and you have to deliver it. So powerful takeaway from this, no, don't do keep it.

00:27:15--> 00:27:25

keep our promises in poverty. And I must have had a promise to do forgiveness. So brothers and sisters, let's catch up in the month of Ramadan, we still have some time,

00:27:26--> 00:27:29

we still have the opportunity ahead of us.

00:27:30--> 00:27:40

And let's remember what Ramadan is all about. Now we'll conclude with this very beautiful example that was given.

00:27:41--> 00:27:57

I didn't want to start with this example at the beginning of the month, because I didn't want some people to just say, Yeah, you're going to this category or that category. But one of the scholars said, when it comes to the month of formula, or when it comes to fasting, people are three levels or three categories.

00:27:59--> 00:28:00

You know how it

00:28:01--> 00:28:08

talks about how people have three levels of stasis, three, you have three different categories of people when it comes to fasting.

00:28:10--> 00:28:14

And we left out one category of people, because they are worthless.

00:28:15--> 00:28:23

Reality, they're worthless. And those are the ones who do not who neglect fasting altogether without an excuse.

00:28:25--> 00:28:41

So he did not even include that category, the ones that Miss on fasting, and they neglect to accidentally turn away from. And hopefully we don't have anyone who belong to that category. But as to those people who actually observed faxing, there are three, there are three types. One type

00:28:42--> 00:28:44

is the type that abstain from eating and drinking.

00:28:46--> 00:28:54

So they take care of that technical part. They don't eat, they don't drink, they don't engage in any act that might never fight or ruin their face, they don't do anything.

00:28:56--> 00:28:58

And this is the majority of or everybody that has

00:29:00--> 00:29:01

nothing special.

00:29:02--> 00:29:04

The second category is a little more special.

00:29:05--> 00:29:40

And that category is the one that realizes that facet is not only about staying away from those things, but it also has to do with with staying away from those things that might diminish them more effectively. So they they basically refrain from Acts from sinful acts. They stay away from wickedness, at least while they're fasting. So they don't commit sense. They don't lie. They don't steal. They don't watch something that was wrong. They don't listen to anything that is harmful. They don't engage in any of those simple as please stay away from them.

00:29:42--> 00:29:59

And especially as this group of people is, many of them, however, they still have those tendencies. They have a craving, they still think about it. That heart is still attached. They're used to it, they miss it, they might even fantasize about it

00:30:00--> 00:30:01

These things that they stay away from

00:30:03--> 00:30:09

and they might get to the second to the to the to the to the third level the level of a very special group of people

00:30:11--> 00:30:37

and that is where the person fast and refrains from even those tendencies and those desires and takes him out of his heart altogether. So, not only would they fat from eating drinking and not only with their senses and their lives, which facts of how things but also their hearts fast from everything other than the last panel

00:30:39--> 00:30:57

that we had for focus during fasting becomes a lot the pleasure of the law and then forgiveness from Allah and attain establish and attain this level of piety and virtue so must have a valid make use of that category and help us capture the rest of the month

00:31:00--> 00:31:01

along those lines

00:31:10--> 00:31:11

along with

00:31:13--> 00:31:14

the lump on

00:31:18--> 00:31:21

took the aspect of

the manufacturing side hustle way

00:36:02--> 00:36:02

back when

00:36:04--> 00:36:04

they

were

00:36:09--> 00:36:13

women cover variable era and

00:36:15--> 00:36:15

you just

00:36:18--> 00:36:19

have to

over

00:36:26--> 00:36:27

fish and

00:36:30--> 00:36:32

you have the shrimp with

00:36:33--> 00:36:34

so many

00:36:36--> 00:36:39

other routes that I was sure

00:36:40--> 00:36:40

what's

00:36:42--> 00:36:46

going on because a lot of Roma Bali I say Pani

00:36:47--> 00:36:47

pika here

00:36:51--> 00:36:52

a lot to cover

00:36:54--> 00:36:56

in the material shape on

00:36:58--> 00:36:59

are you traveling abroad either

00:37:00--> 00:37:01

in our leadership on a

00:37:03--> 00:37:04

continual basis

00:37:08--> 00:37:08

with

00:37:11--> 00:37:11

family

00:37:13--> 00:37:16

and having a party apart from leaving, you leave

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

and

00:37:20--> 00:37:21

physically

00:37:25--> 00:37:27

register for the draft,

00:37:28--> 00:37:29

lottery and worry

00:37:31--> 00:37:33

and worry about other things

00:37:35--> 00:37:35

as well.

00:37:46--> 00:37:47

Data many

00:37:52--> 00:37:54

multi partisan systems in snap.

00:37:57--> 00:38:02

It was disheartening for me to hear that when someone was asked

00:38:03--> 00:38:05

about the month of Ramadan

00:38:06--> 00:38:12

that that individual said, Isn't this a month where Muslims kill each other.

00:38:16--> 00:38:19

Now, the month of Ramadan comes

00:38:21--> 00:38:31

and it comes with this great spirit of virtue. This is what the month of Ramadan is all about. I'm not saying this was powerful.

00:38:36--> 00:38:41

Or you believe fasting was prescribed upon you as it was upon those who are before you.

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

That you may attain virtue,

00:38:46--> 00:38:47

hygiene, righteousness.

00:38:49--> 00:38:50

This is what fasting is all about.

00:38:51--> 00:38:58

And unfortunately, we find that Muslims and non Muslims

00:38:59--> 00:39:00

who are ignorant

00:39:02--> 00:39:09

and who have their own agendas take advantage of these days in a vicious way.

00:39:11--> 00:39:16

And we find that the month of Ramadan is linked to the increase of violence

00:39:17--> 00:39:19

and quote all kinds of destructive behavior.

00:39:20--> 00:39:21

And there was more.

00:39:22--> 00:39:28

I mean, I don't watch the news. Now during the most important one as I used it before.

00:39:30--> 00:39:35

But when I when someone told me the other day someone was assassinated in one of the Muslim countries.

00:39:37--> 00:39:41

And just last night or two nights ago, there was another assassination

00:39:43--> 00:39:44

violence

00:39:45--> 00:39:46

terrorist

00:39:48--> 00:39:51

that he should sponsor by states

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

and that which is perpetrated and carried out on behalf of deviant ignorant

00:40:00--> 00:40:12

Muslims who attribute whatever they do to them. One of those verses that actually caught my attention two nights ago when we were deciding to cancel off last night, actually a person sort of,

00:40:14--> 00:40:20

well, most of our data sets for the honeymoon or being upset in America generally tell you about those who are,

00:40:21--> 00:40:26

who are the worst losers when it comes to their deeds and actions, the worst.

00:40:27--> 00:40:27

And

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

those who go astray, their actions are

00:40:33--> 00:40:35

wrong, they're way off.

00:40:38--> 00:40:40

That they think that what they're doing is good.

00:40:42--> 00:40:46

And this is the worst time of people. I mean, there are those who do

00:40:48--> 00:40:54

who commit wrongdoing and, and all kinds of sense while knowing that they're doing something along

00:40:56--> 00:41:06

those people perhaps one day, they might be admonished they might remember, they might wake up and ask them some time for forgiveness, and feel sorry for what they have done.

00:41:08--> 00:41:12

But worse than that, are those people who do what they do thinking that it's good.

00:41:15--> 00:41:22

While it's a reality rejected by was handled down there, the words of people, they will come into their judgment

00:41:23--> 00:41:30

and be shocked and disappointed that all of their visa rejected, because they were not some

00:41:33--> 00:41:34

brothers and sisters,

00:41:35--> 00:41:37

we are to take a step.

00:41:40--> 00:41:41

The mother formula

00:41:43--> 00:41:47

is a month for transformation, for improvement,

00:41:49--> 00:41:51

it was a month to pursue Virgin

00:41:54--> 00:41:58

and part of pursuing virtue, and part of that transformation that we happen to

00:41:59--> 00:42:00

be part of

00:42:02--> 00:42:03

is removing

00:42:05--> 00:42:05

the causes

00:42:07--> 00:42:09

of this political hypocrisy,

00:42:10--> 00:42:13

that whether again, it is

00:42:15--> 00:42:18

adopted by states or individuals or groups.

00:42:21--> 00:42:23

It is our responsibility

00:42:24--> 00:42:26

to bring this transformation.

00:42:27--> 00:42:27

And

00:42:29--> 00:42:37

those those, again, who will call this the ground for this political hypocrisy that we see that is used.

00:42:38--> 00:42:42

And in some cases, in the name of our own faith in the name of Islam,

00:42:43--> 00:42:46

that is used to turn people away from a loss of power.

00:42:48--> 00:42:51

That is used to violate some of the essential

00:42:52--> 00:42:59

values that Islam and Africa came to establish a loss of power regardless of whether

00:43:00--> 00:43:09

we have honored mankind human beings, we have honored the most honor this, this human being as a family and his descendants.

00:43:11--> 00:43:13

And the statement was General in the program.

00:43:15--> 00:43:17

Unfortunately, the month of Ramadan

00:43:19--> 00:43:26

is one of those periods where people get warnings all over the place, that the level of violence will increase.

00:43:27--> 00:43:32

Also, which of course happens back countries, the Middle East,

00:43:33--> 00:43:39

right, and the amount of trauma is associated with these kind of activities. And this can be

00:43:42--> 00:43:43

we read the perhaps

00:43:44--> 00:43:46

in the month of Ramadan, more than any other month.

00:43:48--> 00:43:50

And we come across verses

00:43:51--> 00:43:52

that should actually

00:43:53--> 00:44:07

remind us of what matters most brothers and sisters, lots of comments like, for instance, says in one of those verses, emphasizing on the sanctity of life, human life, and all kinds of life.

00:44:10--> 00:44:11

When I took

00:44:12--> 00:44:13

a little hammer off,

00:44:15--> 00:44:16

and do not kill,

00:44:17--> 00:44:18

do not take the life kill

00:44:20--> 00:44:25

your children. Right, it says in the previous version, and then it says,

00:44:26--> 00:44:30

and take not life, which God has made sacred,

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

except by way of justice in

00:44:37--> 00:44:41

life is sacred. We know in the verse

00:44:42--> 00:44:57

of Surah Surah five verse 33. a month ago God said that he will save one life. It is as if we have saved our lives. The life of saving one life

00:44:58--> 00:45:00

and this is what the month of Ramadan is all

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

When we talk about hunger,

00:45:04--> 00:45:09

and feeling for those people who are less fortunate, we don't have as much as we have.

00:45:10--> 00:45:13

And we know that people are people in the world are starving.

00:45:14--> 00:45:17

It is our obligation as Muslims to save lives.

00:45:18--> 00:45:21

It is our obligation as Muslims to do acts that will

00:45:22--> 00:45:26

contribute to saving lives, and improving life.

00:45:27--> 00:45:34

So if anyone comes and says, well, Islam says that you can violate the sanctity of life.

00:45:37--> 00:45:42

And even if that person is one of us, or looks like us are toxic,

00:45:44--> 00:45:45

brothers and sisters,

00:45:46--> 00:45:54

as the suffering of our Muslim brothers and sisters in the world continues, we have to take a proactive role.

00:45:56--> 00:45:58

And the month of Ramadan teaches us many

00:45:59--> 00:46:02

practices, many things that we can do

00:46:03--> 00:46:11

to improve the situation, one of which is something which we will talk about inshallah, next Friday, so

00:46:13--> 00:46:13

right, there

00:46:15--> 00:46:25

is another concept. And many people pay attention to those kind of issues. During the month of Ramadan, we have to remember that this is an obligation, it is one of the pillars of Islam.

00:46:27--> 00:46:27

So

00:46:29--> 00:46:32

if you have not thought about it,

00:46:33--> 00:46:40

if it has been a while since you really considered fulfilling this part of this lab, which is one of the pillars of Islam,

00:46:42--> 00:46:45

you know what a pillar is without that pillar, Islam does not extend.

00:46:47--> 00:47:09

It is as sacred as solid faster. And that's why, you know, I said hypocrisy earlier, because when you have someone fasting, yet when it comes to the cat, or somehow they don't care, or they neglect that, that is great. I say this man's who was empowered to make you and I have those who listen and follow the rest of the day, listen to Apollo, and

00:47:14--> 00:47:14

how

00:47:18--> 00:47:22

we're approaching the last 10 nights of Ramadan, brothers and sisters.

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

I mean, this is

00:47:27--> 00:47:29

the sixth day of Ramadan.

00:47:31--> 00:47:33

Two weeks have passed, half of the month is gone.

00:47:35--> 00:48:02

We have, the better half left. And I know like many people, unfortunately, the level of enthusiasm and excitement that we saw at the beginning of the month, when all of a sudden the first two nights the most It was almost scope. People didn't care were a part of it, people did not use any products, they did not let any excuse turn them away from coming and connecting with their body.

00:48:04--> 00:48:09

But as the month continued to progress, we started noticing this decline.

00:48:10--> 00:48:25

Because somehow, somehow, our old habits caught up with us. And we will not be able to live the spirit of the month of Ramadan, we were not able to internalize

00:48:26--> 00:48:35

the lessons or the principles that the multiple God reminds us of we were not able to internalize them and resist

00:48:36--> 00:48:41

all kinds of factors that cause us to miss out on a lot of good deeds.

00:48:42--> 00:48:56

Brothers and sisters, the reason I'm saying this is because we still have some time we have the better half of the month. We have the best 10 nights ahead of us. And we have to we have to catch

00:48:58--> 00:49:00

otherwise, we will be those people who

00:49:01--> 00:49:05

consider to be the worst of the losers and they're not losers, they weren't there to nurture

00:49:07--> 00:49:08

the problem set it

00:49:10--> 00:49:17

in a way they probably could not imagine understand how one could have the opportunity of the month of Ramadan

00:49:19--> 00:49:25

at their disposal and not take advantage of it not get their sense by the end of this month forgiving.

00:49:27--> 00:49:36

So we have the last 10 minutes during the nights of the whole year. And then there is very little the night of decreed because

00:49:38--> 00:49:41

we have a special program for the last 10 nights mostly massages.

00:49:43--> 00:49:44

Mission Viejo

00:49:46--> 00:49:53

Irvine and our center here have joint activities on the 25th and 27th and the 29th ninth.

00:49:54--> 00:49:59

So take advantage of those opportunities that you have when you come in

00:50:00--> 00:50:02

worship in the congregation you get motivated.

00:50:03--> 00:50:12

Sometimes people say no, I'm gonna stay home, it's kind of annoying to deal with a parking lot issue we come up with a phone comes with all kinds of excuses.

00:50:13--> 00:50:23

So someone might say, well isn't cheap on I don't know whether or not some people, sure enough, some people have enough excuses, that they have basically brought with them from,

00:50:24--> 00:50:26

from before Ramadan against Satan excuses,

00:50:28--> 00:50:31

just to discourage them from going and connecting with the loss of habitat.

00:50:33--> 00:50:42

In the verses that will excite during the nights of Ramadan, one message that is repeated in many sorts of parameters, such as what is your enemy, take you as an enemy.

00:50:43--> 00:50:45

And don't let him bring you down.

00:50:46--> 00:50:53

And remember that he has authority or no one except those who will follow the lesson. He has authority, he has no authority or power over him.

00:50:54--> 00:50:58

And one of those areas where she wants to resort is taking advantage of

00:50:59--> 00:51:22

those opportunities, one of those areas that she wanted to miss out on is taking advantage of those opportunities in which you can actually give for the possible loss of habitat. One of those experiences that some people might have is that, oh, you're gonna give us a compliment? Is it enough that you pay taxes, so power when it comes to our taxes, we take care of that. But when it comes to the

00:51:23--> 00:51:24

two and a half percent

00:51:26--> 00:51:27

of your wealth,

00:51:28--> 00:51:30

which does not actually belong to,

00:51:31--> 00:51:41

and that portion of your wealth, after a year becomes belongs to someone else, and you have to deliver it to children in school, don't keep it

00:51:44--> 00:51:53

cheap and promises you poverty, and I must have promised to do forgiveness. So brothers and sisters, let's catch up in the month of Ramadan, we still have some time,

00:51:54--> 00:51:57

we still have the opportunity ahead of us.

00:51:59--> 00:52:08

And let's remember what Ramadan is all about. Now we'll conclude with this very beautiful example that was given.

00:52:10--> 00:52:26

I didn't want to start with this example at the beginning of the month, because I didn't want somebody to just say, yeah, you go into this category, or that category. But one of the scholars said, when it comes to the month of formula, or when it comes to plastic, people are three levels or three categories.

00:52:28--> 00:52:28

You know, he

00:52:30--> 00:52:37

talks about how people have three levels of fasting or three, you have three different categories of people when it comes to fasting.

00:52:38--> 00:52:43

And he left out one category of people, because they are worthless.

00:52:44--> 00:52:52

In reality, they're worthless. And those are the ones who do not who neglect fasting altogether without any excuse.

00:52:53--> 00:53:09

So he did not even include that category, the ones that Miss on fasting, and they neglect to accidentally turn away from. And hopefully we don't have anyone who belong to that category. But as to those people who actually observed faxing, there, there are three types. One type

00:53:11--> 00:53:13

is the type that abstain from eating and drinking.

00:53:14--> 00:53:23

So they take care of the technical part, they don't eat, they don't drink, they don't engage in any act that might nullify or ruin their face. They don't look anything.

00:53:24--> 00:53:27

And this is the majority of or everybody that facts, there's

00:53:28--> 00:53:33

nothing special about the second category is a little more special.

00:53:34--> 00:53:57

And that category is the one that realizes that fantasy not only about staying away from those things, but it also has to do with with staying away from those things that might diminish them more effectively. So they they basically refrain from Acts from simple apps, they stay away from wickedness, at least while they're

00:53:58--> 00:54:09

so they don't make sense. They don't lie. They don't steal, they don't watch something that was wrong. They don't listen to anything that is harmful. They don't engage in any of those simple as please stay away from them.

00:54:11--> 00:54:30

And especially as this group of people is, many of them, however, they still have those tendencies. They have a craving, they still think about it, that heart is still attached to them. They're used to it, they miss it, they might even fantasize about these things that they stay away from.

00:54:31--> 00:54:38

And they might get to the second to the to the to the to the third level, the level of a very special group of people.

00:54:39--> 00:54:59

And that is where the person fasts, and refrains from even those tendencies, and those desires and takes him out of his heart altogether. So not only would they fast from eating, drinking, and not only with their senses, and their

00:55:01--> 00:55:26

Lives switch facts from hard things, but also their hearts fast from everything other than last time and therefore focus during fasting becomes a lot, the pleasure of the law and then forgiveness from Allah and attaining salvation and attain this level of piety and virtue. That's the most common Radek, make use of that category and help us capture the rest of the month.

00:55:29--> 00:55:29

Along those lines

00:55:39--> 00:55:39
